Fixing Table Text ID TEXT_ID is Not Referenced Error Message

Fixing “Table Text ID TEXT_ID is Not Referenced” Error Message

A text node or a leaf node is a physical storage component that saves actual data stored in the rows of MS SQL table. Each text node consists of a parent node and is structured either in B-tree or heap format. The data saved in the text node becomes inaccessible when it becomes orphaned. In such situations, a database user encounters an error message while accessing the records saved in the table. To overcome this error message, a user needs to restore the database table from an updated backup. However, if the backup is corrupt, damaged, or unusable, then a user needs to run DBCC CHECKDB command or search for other MS SQL Database Repair solutions.

Consider a practical case, where you tried to access MS SQL table and encountered:

“[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Table error: Object ID 405628538. The text, ntext, or image node at page (1:1001056), slot 10, text ID 1595707686912 is not referenced.

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]CHECKDB found 0 allocation errors and 1 consistency errors in table ‘audit_record’ (object ID 405628538).

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver][SQL Server]CHECKDB found 0 allocation errors and 1 consistency errors in database ‘PowerPath_NYU’.

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]repair_allow_data_loss is the minimum repair level for the errors found by DBCC CHECKDB (PowerPath_NYU ).”

The data saved in the table can not be accessed after the above error message pops up.


The text node is effectively orphaned. This happens because the node was not referenced in all complex columns of either B-tree or heap index.


Below actions enable you to overcome the above table error message:

.To overcome physical damage situations, you will need to swap the physically damaged system component.

.To surpass logical corruption, you will need to run DBCC CHECKDB command using an adequate repair clause. In most cases, the command works and brings the table in reusable state. However, if the command fails, then you will need to opt for a third-party sql database repair software. A SQL Repair application incorporates effective scanning tools to repair damaged MS SQL database components.

SQL Recovery is an application used by MS SQL database users to repair database components, like table, view, etc. The application also provides selective repair of tables. Compatible with MS SQL Server 2008, 2005, and 2000, the ms sql repair tool repairs databases after almost all logical crashes. It supports Windows 7, Vista, 2008, XP, 2003, and 2000.
